Office 365 launched last month for the public in its beta phase. It is one of the offerings which will be getting the focus of the SMEs as well as the large corporates in the coming times. One of my colleague, has reviewed Office 365 in a series of posts. So I am here to present you a very simple tutorial on “How to add alerts for Documents, Site Pages, etc in Office 365”.
One reason for which Office 365 is there to stay, is not just because of the brand name “Office”, but also the collaboration it offers among various teams.
One such example is of setting alerts for your documents, site pages, site assets, etc.
To show you how you can do it, I will be using our User Group sponsored Office 365 beta account. Please follow these steps:
- Login to your Office 365 beta account
- Click on the documents which are on your SharePoint site or upload any document to set alert.
- Click on Library under the Library Tools tab. A new panel will appear.
- Now click on Alert Me then on “Set alert on this library“. A new window will pop up.
- You are one step closer than setting the alerts. Everything is quite easy to understand now. Just fill the details as required and your are ready with it.
- Click on “Ok” to set the alerts with your settings.
- To manage your alerts, click on “Manage my Alerts” instead of “Set Alert on this library”.
- You will see your alerts so you can either click on the alerts to change the settings or you can click on Add Alerts
Here you will see that you can set alerts for site pages, site assets, posts etc. Isn’t it cool ? You are updated about the latest changes which have been made, so you don’t have to figure what had happened, if you were out for few days. You can just log in to your account and check the mail.
I loved this feature because we don’t have such feature in the Office Web Apps. Office 365 sure lives up to its expectations!
